Biological neurons that show a locally tuned response to input may arise from the network topology of interneurons in the system. By considering such a subnetwork, a learning algorithm is developed for the online learning of the centre, width and shape of locally tuned response functions. The response function for each input is trained independently, resulting in a very good fit for the presented data. Two example networks utilising these neurons were considered. The first was a\ completely supervised network while the second utilised\ a Kohonen-like training scheme for the hidden layer. The\ adaptive response function neurons (ARFNs) were able\ to achieve excellent class separation while maintaining\ good generalisation with relatively few neurons.
